I can't stop humming Sandi Thom's "I wish I was a punk rocker (with flowers in my hair)"
What exactly does schadenfreude mean? I came across the word in an article in Vogue this weekend. How could I drop it into conversation?
Had my first ever Skype conversation this evening with my old friend Roddy in Ireland. I know, I know it’s so 2005, but it’s new to me and I like it. (It's lezzlesg by the way)
Must remember never to try to cram music, play park, physiotherapist and doctor’s appointments in between nursery and dinner ever, ever again. It can only end in screaming.
Deborah sent me a newspaper cutting today. Sentence I most closely identified with:
Apparently, by the time most babies are weaned they are sucking at least as much Chardonnay out of the local mammary glands as they are milk, as Mummy desperately attempts to re-irrigate the desiccated husk of her post-natal life.
Update on the wifi débâcle: Orange have reimbursed half of the 120€ which is better than a kick in the teeth, I suppose.
Things I ate over the weekend: ragoût d'asperges, framboisier, delicious soupe de fèves, macarons from the market in Sarlat, purée de carottes made from the sweetest carrots ever, leftover foie gras.....
Gifts I was given over the weekend: a Nespresso coffee machine. It's great.
